1 O my soul would fill with rapture if this moment I might hear:
Behold, the Bridegroom cometh;
I would shout aloud with joy if it were spoken now and her,
Behold the Bridegroom cometh.

Refrain:
Almost now I see his matchless glory in the sky,
It maybe that the dawning of his day is drawing nigh,
And, O my eager heart awaits the long, expected cry:
Behold, the Bridegroom cometh.

2 Soon my eager waiting spirit shall the glad announcement hear:
Behold, the Bridegroom cometh;
And the dreams of night shall vanish when the Bridegroom shall appear;
Behold the Bridegroom cometh. [Refrain]

3 Hark! the long, expected cry rings out amid the stilly night:
Behold, the Bridegroom cometh;
Go ye out, therefore, to meet him with a bright and shining light;
Behold the Bridegroom cometh. [Refrain]
